Pacquiao says he’s loyal to PDP-Laban

EMMANUEL D. PACQUIAO — HENZBERG AUSTRIA/SENATE PRIB

Senator Emmanuel “Manny” D. Pacquiao remains with the ruling Partido Demokratiko Pilipino – Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) and will be allowed to defend himself from allegations of disloyalty, according to its secretary general.

Melvin Matibag, secretary general of one of PDP-Laban’s factions, said they would give the boxing champ a chance to respond to these charges.

Mr. Pacquiao on Friday denied allegations that he was planning to convert the regional People’s Champ Movement into a national party.

He said the movement remains a local party and his allegiance to PDP-Laban, which is headed by President Rodrigo R. Duterte, was unquestionable. — Alyssa Nicole O. Tan
